You Don't Understand

without warning the bubble burst the sirens wailed
somebody was going to jail
he was a lone man a lonely man a lonesome man
They didn't understand the irony of all he had ever wanted his entire life
was to understand
to understand was all he'd ever wanted


I need her, I need this I can't manage without it
Her mother said no you are a spiteful girl a hateful girl
a girl who is full of demands. The cabinet in her mothers room
then off to bed to close her eyes, I can't manage anymore
don't love me then- I understand
I'm a spiteful girl a hateful girl - a girl who is full of demands


If everything changes then who will I be
who will I cling to who will see me know me love me
who will hear me when the ears are gone touch me when the hands are gone
laugh when the voice is gone
she removed both their wedding rings and swallowed them
still beside him I will go with you.
Til death do us part.

There is no shame in demanding happiness. Never settle for the best you think you can get.

It's the oddest thing. I most always sleep through the night, but I woke up during -- like the wee hours, and those thoughts were on my mind. Not sure if it was a bad dream. Something I ate? lol. In any event I wrote them down, and the next morning I posted it. Had second thoughts after I did.

It sounds confusing and sort of all over the place. I guess, angst? A big dose of ANGST.

But thank you kindly, sir. : )

I get your point. I do a lot of writing. I always wake up in the middle of a deep sleep and write everything down. Love your warm work!
